I have a confession to make. Are you ready?
My husband doesn’t know about my blog.
Shocking? Kinda. It’s such a huge part of my daily thought process(“Oh no she didn’t, this is SO going in my blog tonight!!”) that to keep it from him is like hiding a third limb or another child or something. Technically he knows I have one, but he doesn’t understand exactly what a blog is, or that I share as much as I do about our lives. He doesn’t have the address, and as far as I know has never even seen the page.
It’s not that I purposely hide it from him exactly. I just don’t go out of my way to point it out to him. I’m just seeing too many cases lately of husbands getting upset about them, be it the personal information shared, that you are writing about them, or all of the above. Marriage is a rollercoaster ride by itself, why add to the stress? Not to mention I just don’t want to have to be looking over my shoulder all the time, wondering if he is going to take something the wrong way, or should I maybe not share that, or is it ok to discuss my in-laws?? My blog is my own version of therapy, minus the couch and box of tissues. It’s how I vent my rants, share my joys, and stop myself from putting the kids up on Ebay.
I’m sure one day he will figure it out, but for now I like having my own little corner of the world that is *just* mine. Besides, the voices in my head are nice to me here.
So what about you? Does hubby read your blog, or do you keep it a dirty secret?
